70 percent of employees at Lebanon's mobile operators quit
The resignation of 70 percent of employees at Lebanon's mobile operators Cellis and LibanCell has raised serious questions just two weeks ahead of the transfer of these cellular networks to new firms.
Industry sources told The Daily Star that 70 percent of employees at LibanCell, as well as 65 percent of workers at Cellis, have decided to quit over the past two months.
The German firm Detecon and the Kuwaiti Mobile Telecom Company are scheduled to run the two networks on behalf of the state as of June 1.
"Cellis and LibanCell staff received 30 months' salary. This package was part of an option that was offered to the staff who wanted to leave the companies," one telecom expert said, adding that the total amount of compensation to be paid out will be more than $20 million. (menareport.com)
